Scores Of Migrants Rescued From Boat İn Aegean Sea

Turkish coast guards respond to call for help by irregular migrants stranded in sea.

A total of 51 irregular migrants were rescued off the coast of Turkey's Aegean province of Izmir on Wednesday, according to coast guard sources.

The sources who spoke on condition of anonymity said the motor of the boat broke down in the sea.

The coast guards responded to their call for help.

The migrants were trying to go to Greece by illegal means, the sources added.

Turkey has been the main route for refugees trying to cross into Europe, especially since the beginning of the civil war in Syria.

Some 205,000 irregular migrants were held in Turkey in 2018 as of Oct. 15, according to the Interior Ministry.

The irregular migrants were mostly Afghan, Pakistani, Syrian and Iraqi nationals. -
